Lee Friedlander - At Work

Amsterdam, the 29th of november 2003. Huis Marseille. The American photographer Lee Friedlander (b. 1934) concentrates in his photography on what he calls "the American Social Landscape". As the title implies, the At Work series does not focus on the actual work itself, but on the people who do the work. Friedlander is much more interested in creating a universal picture of the worker in general, in showing these workers as links in the chain of a much greater industrial and economic process. He observed these working people close at hand.
